Authors: Gata VA, Lisencu CI, Vlad CI, Piciu D, Irimie A, Achimas-Cadariu P Abstract Malignant melanoma represents the major cause of mortality among skin cancers, with increasing incidence and mortality rates worldwide. Despite the numerous public health campaigns and the efforts undertaken in the last decade regarding the establishment of a rapid diagnostic and an efficient treatment for these patients, the long-term prognosis has not been significantly improved. Thus, numerous studies were conducted in order to establish a more accurate prognosis, tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) being considered in many st...

This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved. Menadione based triazole hybrids were synthesized by employing copper catalyzed azide‐alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC). The synthesized compounds were evaluated for their anticancer activity against five selected cancer cell lines. Compound 6 showed higher potency than the standard tamoxifen and parent menadione against MCF‐7 cell line, arrested cell cycle at G0/G1 phase and induced apoptotic cell death.

AbstractPurpose of ReviewRecent advances in the treatment of eyelid tumors have centered on the excision, evaluation of margins, role of sentinel lymph node biopsy, and adjunctive/adjuvant systemic and radiation therapy. The purpose of this review is to elaborate on these advances.Recent FindingsMohs excision of basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma continues to provide the greatest success in complete excision of the cancer, especially in those cases of high-risk disease including medial canthal location and recurrent disease. Sentinel lymph node biopsy has proven useful in the assessment of early regional meta...

CONCLUSIONS: As the present project demonstrates, through the application of 3D printing technologies, the costs and time spent during the process in the clinical workload in brachytherapy treatment are reduced. Overall, 3D printing is a promising technique for brachytherapy that might be well received in the community. PMID: 28725252 [PubMed]

CONCLUSIONS: This work is special, since the equipment's treatment voltage was 69.5 kV, and this is the first prospective study with long term follow-up with Esteya(®). These preliminary report show excellent results with less toxicity and excellent cosmesis. While surgery has been the treatment of choice, certain patients might benefit from eBT treatment. These are elderly patients with comorbidities or undergoing anticoagulant treatment as well as those who simply refuse surgery or might have other contraindications. PMID: 28725249 [PubMed]

Three new dibenzoylmethane derivatives, (E)-3,4-methylenedioxy-2'-methoxy-2'',2''-dimethylpyrano-(5'',6'':3',4')-7-methoxychalcone, 2'-hydroxy-5'(3'''',3''''-dimethylallyl)-8-( α , α -dimethylallyl)-furano-(4'',5'':3'4')-dibenzoylmethane and 2'-O-(3'',3''-dimethylallyl)-8-( α , α -dimethylallyl)-furano-(4'',5'':3'4')-dibenzoylmethane, were isolated from a dichloromethane extract from the root bark of Muellera filipes (Benth.) M.J. Silva&A.M.G. Azevedo, along with two dibenzoylmethane derivatives, 2'-methoxy-8-( α , α -dimethylallyl)-furano-(4'',5'':3',4')-dibenzoylmethane and 2'-hydr...

ConclusionsPersonalized melanoma genomic risk information can prompt risk‐appropriate discussions about skin cancer prevention and skin examinations with family and health professionals. Sharing this information with others might increase its impact on melanoma prevention and skin examination behaviours, and this process could be used to encourage healthy behaviour change within families.

Authors: Mamdani H, Wu H, O'Neil BH, Sehdev A Abstract Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is an aggressive cancer associated with high mortality worldwide. HCC develops in the setting of underlying cirrhosis due to chronic liver disease. Surgery is usually considered the treatment of choice for early disease; however, most patients have locally advanced or metastatic HCC at diagnosis in which case treatments are limited. Immune checkpoint blockade of programmed death receptor-1 (PD-1) pathway offers a potential treatment strategy based on the encouraging results of the phase I/II trial of nivolumab (Checkmate 040 trial...
